Dance for your beliefs - engaged practice in dance

Dance is the ultimate non-verbal art. How can a body speak up and become a militant discourse? What are the difficulties, challenges, and risks? Moderator Angélique Wilkie, professor in Concordia University’s Department of Contemporary Dance, will discuss with panelists Wynn Holmes, engaged choreographer and director of LFDT/Lo Fi Dance Theory, Sterling Downey, founder of the urban culture festival Under Pressure and Deputy Mayor of the City of Montreal, Vice-President of the Municipal Council, and Advisor to the City of Verdun, and Emmanuel Jouthe, artistic director and choreographer with the Danse Carpe Diem/Emmanuel Jouthe Company.
